LaLiga Women’s Match To Broadcast Live On Facebook

Tue 24th May 2016 | Television & Broadcasting

The match between Atletico Madrid Women and Athletic Club is to be shown live on LaLiga's Facebook page.

Saturday's top-flight clash will be the first ever football match broadcast live on the popular social network and is the latest in LaLiga’s bid to innovate and explore new ways for supporters to enjoy content in the world of sport.

After showing the Copa del Rey and LaLiga World fixtures on YouTube, the game will be broadcast with the help of beIN Sports, the competition's official broadcaster in Spain, at 11:45 CET on Saturday 28 May, and will not be subject to any geoblocking making it available in every country in the world.

The initiative is a further demonstration of LaLiga's commitment to live broadcasts on social networks, as seen during the presentation of the LaLiga4Sports project, which was followed by almost 85,000 viewers on its Facebook page on 21 April.

The clash between Atletico Madrid Women and Athletic Club Women will be the curtain-raiser for the project, with two of the best teams in the top flight doing battle at the Cerro del Espino Stadium.

The home side currently find themselves in third and are targeting a top-two finish which would secure a place in next season's Women's Champions League.

The visitors, coached by Joseba Agirre, sit atop the Women's First Division at present having lost only once so far this season, although second-placed FC Barcelona are breathing down their necks in second, just a single point behind. Champions League places and the title are at stake in Madrid.

The clash on Saturday 28 May at 11:45 CET will be shown on facebook.com/LaLiga.
